For some reason I now decide to rate this when toasted and after quite a few. Aroma floral, yeasty, lots of malt, bit creamy, biscuits, marzipan. Really good. Taste is fruity, dark fruits, sweet, bit yeasty, boozy sweetness, but easy drinking. Very lovely. Toasted (me).

What a beer to drink on Christmas day! Best before 07-05. Overwhelming aroma of malt, cinnamon, plums and butter. Sweet and thick. Buttery with roasted malt, plums, licorice, some well-hidden alcohol, apple, raisin, porto, cinnamon and pepper. Amazingly complex and powerful, sweet and overwhelming, delicious beer. Without any doubt one of the best beers in the world.

Geen schuim. Ruikt naar wijn, kurk en kelder. Smaakt zoet, pruimen, beetje cola, honing. Koolzuur is foetsie. Dank Joris V. en Judy v.

I has my third one at a tasting, and realized that I had not rated it before. Pours cloudy amber with small frothy beige head, caramel malt-dried fruits aroma, low carbonation, mildly bitter caramel malt taste with dried fruits and alcohol undertones, smooth body, long caramel finish. Well deserved score.
